Some fingers are naturally big. Even when you have a normal weight, if your parents have fat fingers, you are most likely going to have one if you don’t have one already. Men couldn’t care less if they have fat fingers but some women are bothered by it. Before I proceed in giving you tips on how to choose the best engagement or wedding ring for fat fingers, do know that it really doesn’t matter whether your fingers are fat or thin, long or short. Be thankful that you have a finger and that someone is putting a ring on it.
Next, there hasn’t been a time, in my 3 decades of existence around jewelleries, I have never seen anyone look at someone’s hand with an engagement ring or wedding ring and say, “That ring doesn’t fit your fat fingers.”
If, however, you want to simply improve how you see your own fingers with the engagement ring or wedding ring on it, here are some things to consider.
Bigger is Better
It’s one of the most well-known tips when advising someone big on how to put on accessories. A ring is no different. The bigger the ring, the better it will look on your finger because it gives the ring and the finger some proportion.
However, be careful and avoid looking ridiculous. Remember that engagement rings and wedding rings are “solemn” items you wear. It is supposed to represent a vow to stay together forever, not to
Avoid the “Cupcake”
Have you ever seen someone wear jeans that are so tight on the waist area that extra skin and fats “spill”? it looks like a cupcake. This happens because women refuse to buy jeans that they deem “too big”. They choose to buy jeans with smaller sizes even when it is too small for them. It’s embarrassing not because you have big waists but because you choose to look ridiculous. Buy the right size of jeans and the same thing is true with rings.
Don’t buy rings that are too small that it will look like you are strangling with your fingers. Buying a ring with a smaller size does not make your finger look smaller. On the contrary, it makes your finger look bigger.
Entertain the thought of buying an adjustable ring. An adjustable ring is when the band is not close. The ends are open allowing you to pull it apart more or push it together closer.
There are also rings that have one band but goes on a loop several times and the end of the band is not connected to the other end. That allows you to adjust the ring, to loosen it or tighten it.
Another thing you can do to help your finger look longer is to make sure it is smooth. Moisturize it and avoid leaving it dry. A smooth skin looks tighter, tight in the right way, that is.
